daunting is trying to find everything when that first snowfall comes.
A few extra minutes now will really pay off later. Wash mittens or gloves and let
air dry. Take each pair and clip them together with a clothespin or elastic. Remove
the lining of the boot and wash, while they are drying, thoroughly clean the outer shell.
When dry, string them together with the laces. To remove salt stains, place white
vinegar onto a clean cloth and gently rub the boot. Wash all washable coats or send
them to the drycleaner before storing to prevent stains from setting in. Label all items
according to size and pack away in a sealed container with a dryer sheet or a package
of silica gel.
